To Be A Jew in Estonia – In the Past, Present, and Future
This tour will take Qesher through the 150 years of Jewish life in Estonia, the smallest of the Baltic countries. Estonia is known for its environmental beauty, and its capital Tallinn is considered one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Qesher will learn about the Jewish community’s commercial success in the late 19th century, and speak about the “Jewish Cultural Autonomy” in the short-lived Republic of Estonia of the 1920s – 1930s. We will discuss the Holocaust and the Communist repression that followed. Finally, Qesher will look at today’s community and speak about the current Estonian attitude towards Jews, Israel, and the Holocaust.
